12 ounce bottle poured into a lager glass. The beer is a moderately hazy copper color with a white head of foam. Decent retention. The aroma has fruity and grainy notes. Sweet and a bit lemon peel-ish. Medium body, and medium carbonation. There is a bit of a musty character to the beer. It stays consistently sweet throughout, though.

Where and how: bottle 355? ml superspak (5517) - Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Aroma nice, pleasant milder feel. Noble hop (Mittlefruh?)aroma with clean malty backing. Classical approach to style.
Top: medium plus sized wite cap.
Base: fine haze amber-gold.
Palate : medium bodied, softer mid with slightly thinner walls.
Taste: Nice smooth character with balancing malts mild dryness of alcohol. Maybe even tad too dry for Bock. A bit like Polish Mocnes.
Other notes despite small flaws this is solid example of style.
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 7/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, apple, biscuit, toast, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of pear, apple, biscuit, toast, honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, apple, biscuit, toast, honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good maibock style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

7/6/14. Bottle. Pours a golden copper with a minimal head and no lacing. Nice light floral nose with a bit of sweetness. Carmel sweet mouth with a bit of hops rounding it out. Has the heaviness of a high ABV lager.
